I am surprised there is not more attention on this new feature. This adds the ability to use the swap / multi-swap from a Super Joey. Both viewers can now use swap. Before only the hopper viewer had this ability. With an OTA module you can have 3 turners on each using multi-swap or 2 going on one and 4 on the other. This will compete with Direct TV client boxes. C31's have had the ability to do double play (swap). There are some initial problems, pause does not always work, but this is only the first implantation. This also is a little like Tivo, which has the turners buffering the entire time. Now I will be able to swap turners on commercials and still keep live buffers while watching from the Super Joey. I am very happy for this added feature. I added a picture where you can see 3 buffering on the HWS and 3 on the Super Joey.
